scary creatures

What kind of monsters have we Americans become? We've decided that we can use nuclear weapons in a first strike, our AIDS policies in Africa are compromised in the name of profit and prudishness, our administration advocates the use of torture to gather "intelligence".
Finally, the Senate appears to have at least come partially to their senses, voting overwhelmingly to ban Torture of ANY person in U.S. custody, and attaching this ban as an amendment to the Military Spending Bill, making it difficult for the BushCorp to veto. But dont think they wont try. The bill still must go through conference committee, where the House has not included any such language in their version, and given their history, is not likely to without great protest.
